Though in India egg shaped lemons are grown elsewhere, in Karnataka, I find it is perfectly round like a Badminton ball. Lemon is squeezed in many of the south Indian foods. There is a dish called Lemon Rice, Lemon pickle etc. It is quite healthy (when one is having stomach upset, people do take soda with fresh lime).
